Carly Rousso, who last week was found guilty of huffing a cleaning product before running over and killing a 5-year-old girl, should be sentenced to probation, her attorney is arguing, according to an article in the Daily Herald.
Rousso, 19, was found guilty on four counts of aggravated driving under the influence and pleaded guilty to one count of reckless homicide just before her trial started last week. In 2012, she huffed a cleaning product, got behind the wheel of her car, then drove across four lanes of Central Avenue in Highland Park and killed Jaclyn Santos-Sacramento, 5, who was walking with her family on the sidewalk.
Her attorney, Douglas Zeit, told the Herald that he believes there are “extraordinary circumstances” that merit a sentence of probation. She is facing three to 14 years in prison. Sentencing is set for July 10.
